Which printers work with WhosOnLocation?

We currently support both the Dymo 450, 450 Turbo, Brother QL-720NW, TEMPbadge BP4 / GoDex DT4 printers. If you are printing from an iPad using our WolKiosk app then we only support the wi-fi enabled Brother QL-720NW printer. Please note these label printers utilize thermal printing technology and therefore only print in greyscale or black on white only.

WhosOnLocation also supports printing to CR80 plastic or pvc card printers; and by default therefore color printing.

What if I need visitor badges that expire?

You can choose to show time and date of entry on every badge, but we understand that some teams might require a higher level of security.

WhosOnLocation supports TEMPbadges. The following printers and manufacturers badge codes are supported:

  • Printer: TEMPbadge BP4 / GoDex DT4
  • Badge Code: 06151 and 02050
  • Size: 71 x 49mm (2.8125” W x 1.935” H)

Note: The Dymo 450 and 450 Turbo in some regions also supports printing of these badges. These expiring badges may not be available in some countries. Check out their website here.

What is the Meadco Scriptx?

When you normally print from a browser a printer dialog pop up window appears asking you to select your printer and set the print preferences like orientation etc.… This would be cumbersome and not very friendly for receptionists and visitors.

ScriptX is a tool that enables Badge Passes to be automatically printed from WhosOnLocation without the need for the Receptionist to select a printer each time they print a badge or for a visitor to have to select a printer just to get a badge.

Meadco ScriptX is required to be installed on the receptionists’ PC if they are printing passes from a printer installed on their PC. It is also required on Windows kiosks if that kiosk is printing passes.

The only time MeadCo ScriptX is not required is when the kiosk is an iPad. ScriptX is not needed as iPads use shared wi-fi and AirPrint to print and communicate with the printer.
